I can never resist these little pieces when I see them. I found this one on craigslist a few weeks back. It belonged to a sweet girl named Margaret. I had arranged to go and get it when we had a serious plumbing issue and I had to dip into my business furniture fund. Thankfully she was gracious enough to be patient with me and I went and picked it up on Wednesday. I also bought a table with a leaf and 6 chairs to match.
It’s amazing what you can do when the kids go back to school. That could be a Dr. Seuss book:O)
I got a china cabinet done, a coat of paint on a table and leaf, a mirror done and a photo shoot. For me, that’s a pretty good days work considering I have to leave at 12.45 to pick up little bit.
I used a combination of three chalk paint colors, The new white, louise blue and country gray. I layered them until I achieved a desired effect and then began to distress with a wet rag bringing out some wood and the under colors. I finished with dark wax. I decided to leave the cabinet in it’s natural state on the inside. I recently was inspired by a beautiful french cabinet in the new French Country magazine that had been painted. The wood was left alone on the inside. This cabinet has real wood shelves with a beautiful grain that was perfect for this.
